A spokesperson for Amazon confirmed that a new Amazon Fresh store will open soon in the Broomall Commons Shopping Center in Broomall, writes Pete Bannan for the Daily Times.

Signs for the store went up Wednesday afternoon. It is located near West Chester Pike next to the Planet Fitness and Pet Smart stores.

The store will have traditional checkouts but will include its Just Walk Out technology, which lets customers skip the checkout line.
